Got a cheap rate but even so the standard of the rooms was very poor. TV didn't work properly in one room, heating was off most of the day and only seemed to come on for an hour. The other room wasn't cleaned properly as had wine and chocolates left in it from previous occupants and then wasn't cleaned as... More

On arrival we were advised that due to a heating problem in one of the two single rooms we had booked we were being upgraded to family rooms at no extra cost. I normall find hotel rooms too hot but this one was like a fridge throughout the duration of the visit. At one point I had to sit next... More

The hotel is at excellent location in shanklin Esplanade. Have stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms were ok. The breakfast is not very good. It seems there is shortage of staff due to which it was not very well maintained. The staff was friendly and co-operative. Have to search for the hotel staff for getting water etc. The room service... More

We stayed at The Mayfair Hotel over the weekend. I didn't pay a huge amount for 2 Double Rooms so I wasn't expecting it to be the Ritz but I did expect a lot better than we got. On arrival the place was deserted, I mean there was nobody anywhere. I followed the signs for the Reception through a dark... More

The location is perfect for Shanklin beach and Esplanade. It has large car park which will save you a fortune if you just walk down to the sea as the parking is quite expensive along the front. The lady who runs the hotel is lovely and so is her helper. I booked at short notice but she was able to... More

After travelling 2 weeks in France and Britain with nothing but spectacular stays, we were captivated by the scenic views advertised by the Mayfair hotel in Shanklin. Unfortunately, the disappointments did not stop after we turned the corner and sighted the exterior of the building. The downward spiral included unfinished floors, a small room with an incredible view of the... More

Travelled solo and stayed for one night and wont be returning. The bed constantly creaked so couldn't sleep. The Bathroom was not properly cleaned and was cramped andrest of the hotel could also be cleaned/redecorated. Only good thing was the view.

If you're looking for compensation, just take a tumble on the filthy unswept steps into the hotel or on the broken and unlit steps from the upper to lower car park. All internal fire doors (marked 'keep shut') were held permanently open with bungees (see photo,) dangerous wiring on ceiling light in corridor outside room 12 (see photo,) toilet seat... More
